Etude for both hands: playing evenly in a batterie in triplets.
Here is a batterie etude that calls for greater independence of the singing line than in the previous examples. The note values are more difficult to play evenly. While shading the singing line as required, the student must also make the bass line legatissimo, ensuring that the notes of the left hand retain their evenness with respect to the right hand’s singing line. The character of this little piece is simple. The student, as he or she progresses, will learn that simplicity is a sort of finery that is sometimes harder to utilize than the richest ornaments.(H. de Montgeroult)
